there on the horizon before he was able to finally land on his feet just about 45 miles away from roswell, new mexico where this mission began for him early this morning. incredible feat here. still unclear whether he was able to break that record and become the first human to break that sound barrier. we do know that he has already set a record being the first human to go the highest one has ever gone in a manned balloon. that we know, and there is his picture of his mom right there. earlier she was in tears during his ascent into space, and now much relief for mom ava there, the first time she's actually left europe and there in roswell, new mexico to eyewitness this flight in history. this was not a nasa project, this was a commercial project, but many people who were part of this mission form he wierly wor with nasa. pretty incredible stuff we've been watching this afternoon. we want to bring you up to date on two very important stories we continue to follow. this, the felix baumgartner place in history, and we also want to report to you this very sad news, the death of one of the most prominent
a story from roswell, new mexico, where we usually hear about ufos. so the only ufo i guess you have seen is this guy practicing maybe. how does he plan to do this? >> reporter: well, don, they have done the scientific work to this down to the "t." this is mission control behind me sponsored by red bull, as you can see. this red bull team they have put together has spent five years preparing for this. they have hired some of the best minds in aeronautical science to put this all together. so they do have everything planned out. what we're going to show you here are photo journalist mike love is going to pan over here. this is the field where they will launch a balloon with a cap actual that will take felix baumgartner. the balloon will take him to the edge of space. it's about 122,000 feet above the earth. at that point he's going to step out of that capsule and free fall for 117,000 feet wearing nothing but a high-pressure suit, a helmet, and a parachute. that's going to break the record for the longest free fall from space, and in doing so, don, he will also break the speed record. he's
's a former republican who served two terms as governor of new mexico. he joins me live. thank you so much, governor, for taking the time to speak with us today. i want to lay out a bit of your platform first before we go any further. you're a fiscal conservative. you want to balance the budget by next year cutting military spending by 1/3, getting rid of the irs and on the platform legalizing marijuana. they're fascinating platforms. a lot of people would be interested in them. my big question for you, sir, is do you think that you could beat governor romney or president obama and become president of the united states? >> well, i wouldn't be doing this if i didn't think there was the opportunity to win. most importantly, look, i think there needs to be a truth candidate in all of this. i would just like to correct you on wanting to cut the military by 1/3. i think we need to cut military spending by 43%. i think we need to cut all government by 43% or we'll find ourselves in a monetary collapse, the result of borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we
that far away. mission control is in roswell, new mexico. you will be hearing some audio momentarily from them. you can also see him kind of conversing likely with mission control right now. brian todd is watching closely as is chad myers in atlanta. brian joins us from washington. brian spent a good part of last week in roswell and got to know some of the players involved in this. chad with a very great understanding of the science behind all of this this morning, all systems are go. there were some moments because of wind they thought perhaps conditions were not perfect. in the end, looked like perfect conditions for the ascent. chad, let's begin with you. mission control very excited that already one record has been set just by virtue of the fact he met that goal of altitude. >> right. that's above anybody else in a balloon. the two men in that balloon, two separate men didn't make it to earth safe, they died in 1961. so this is not without threat. this is a major issue for felix to get down from there, literally, go the speed of sound awhile in a free fall, and finally land with a par
, cnn's brian todd is live in roswell, new mexico. what's the latest, brian? >> reporter: john, at least a slight hold on the operation due to the weather. the winds at 700 to 800 feet up are a little higher than they are comfortable with, 17 to 18 miles per hour. they want it to calm down to 5 miles per hour. a slight hold on the weather. this still could come off in the window they allotted. that window begins at 8:30 eastern time. our photojournalist can zoom into the capsule. you can see it at the end of that yellow crane. the balloon is next to it although you can't see it too visibly from the naked eye here but this is the feel where the balloon and capsule will be launched from there once it goes up it will take 2 1/2 to three hours to get up to the edge of space. felix baumgartner will step off the capsule, that whole dive will take 15 minutes and during that period he'll hopefully break the speed of sound about 690 miles per hour, john, a slight hold on this for now but hopefully this will come off later this morning. >> brian todd in roswell, new mexico. he's jumping from 23 mi
barrier. cnn's brian todd is in rose wwe, new mexico for the supersonic event. he has a preview for us. >> reporter: zoraida, john, the moment is just about at hand. we're about to find out if felix baumgartner can break this record. he's going to try to break the speed record for a human traveling outside a space vehicle. no one has ever broken the sound barrier, 690 miles an hour in just a suiting with helmet and parachute. he'll be try to do that today. here is what we have going here. this is the balloon that will take him up to the edge of space. it's called a high altitude balloon. that's a diagram of it there. the balloon is ten times thinner than a plastic bag, yet incredibly strong. this is the atechnology involve here. it will take about three hours to get to his starting point. you see some of the own components here. what is key is if any of the suit gets breached at those high a altitudes, about 30 sections after his jump will be the most hostile. if anything about the suit gets breached, he could freeze because of the severe temperatures there. it gets about 70 degrees be
that i interviewed, he actually was able to get out early because he went to mexico to surprise to train the people who are going to take over his job. he went to the factory in mexico for some training and when he was there, he was given a tour and he looked around the factory and the person giving him the tour said, this line is going to china. this assembly line is going to china and this is going to china and he said, if everything is going to china, where are you guys going to go? your factory in north carolina, your production is coming here. that's how he found out. >> overall, the general theme in talking to these people, are the workers feeling like they are better off than they were four years ago or no? >> i'd say no. and the reason is that even though many people have been able to find jobs. when you actually trace people's life stories, you find that most people are earning less than what they did and some people dramatically so you have a woman that worked for 35 years at leviton and her name is shirley miller and she is one example. she went back to school for accounting a
more mention this week in the debate than all of japan, mexico, or europe? >>> first, my take. the international monetary fund's latest world economic outlook makes for gloomy roading. growth projections have been revised downward almost everywhere, especially in europe and the big emerging markets like china. yet when looking out over the next four years, coincidentally the next presidential term, the imf projects that the united states will be the strongest of the world's rich economies. u.s. growth is forecast to average 3%, much stronger than that was germany or france, at 1.2%, or even canada at 2.3%. increasingly the evidence suggests that the united states has come out of the financial crisis of 2008 in better shape than its peers because of the actions of its government. perhaps the most important cause of america's relative health is the federal reserve. ben bernanke understood the depths of the problem early and responded energetically and creatively. the clearest vindication of his actions has been that the european central bank after charting an opposite course for
that is gathered out there in roswell, new mexico very shortly, if he's not doing it already. so he's well enough to talk and we have been trying to correspond with some of the red bull people to ask what his condition is, from all visual signs right now, he's doing very well. you saw him land and raise his fist to the air, the piece of video that we're seeing, the hop into history and the incredible rate of speed was just compelling. he landed about an hour and 45 minutes ago. he did break the speed of sound, that mark, 690 miles an hour, how fast he actually went, red bull is saying he went about 704 miles an hour. but we did see on the monitors during his job that he hit got 729 miles an hour. so we'll get an official reading of exactly how fast he went. but a real thrill as he jumped from higher than anyone has ever jumped, 128,000 feet. that's about 8,000 feet higher than they expected him to jump. >> and why was balm baumgartner committed to this jump. >> he is a daredevil, he base jumped off the towers, and base jumped off the chrysler statue in reno. but nothing ever to this magnitude. wh
exceptions are those accused of premeditated murder. >>> and new to mexico where a group of armed men just stole the body of a slain drug gang leader. the mexican military confirmed a little earlier today that they killed lazcano. his body had been moved to a funeral home in northern mexico and that's when the armed men moved in and took the body according to the state attorney general. >>> the nobel prize in fizzic this is year goes to american and french scientists. david wineland and they were honored for their work in light and matter. they'll share the $1.2 million prize and that money has been decreased would i 20% because of the economic downturn. >>> and now to northwest pakistan where a 14-year-old girl who won a peace prize for her actity vichl has been shot by the pakistani taliban. they say they targeted this young girl specifically because they has been outspoken about allowing girls to be educated. her father says she's in stable condition, though she has a bullet lodged in her neck. but the taliban warns if she survives this time, she won't next time. reza is on the phone. f
of the damage from fast and furious. botched atf operation that allowed guns to go across the border to mexico with the intent of tracking them to mexican drug cartels. a painstaking investigative report. it found many of those guns from the u.s. were, indeed, used in murders, kidnappings and at least two massacres across the border. worry joined by one of the reporters covering this for univision. so nice to see you today, sir. thanks for coming by. what did you find? >> well, we found a number of things. i guess what you mentioned already was we found that there is a strong suspicion that some of these weapons from fast and furious operation were used in the 2010 massacre, basically a birthday party where a lot of young teenagers in the city were partaking of a birthday party and hitmen from a rival cartel showed up and killed more than a dozen teenagers. and so there's a strong suspicion that guns from fast and furious were used in that massacre. >> starting with your investigation of that massacre at the birthday party, trying to track three guns used by the assassins there, you were able
on a lake along the united states/mexico border. he was shot in the head. she was forced to leave his body behind. now a suspect is in custody. tiffany hartley's reaction when we continue. >>> back now with more on the breaking news. the pretty surprising jailhouse tape that surfaced tonight on penn state radio. jerry sandusky, the former penn state football coach, convicted serial child rapist, not expressing remorse, not really taking responsibility, in fact, not taking responsibility at all, blaming the victims, the system, the courts, just about everybody that convicted him. listen. >> we must fight unfairness, inconsistency and dishonesty. people need to be portrayed for who they really are. we have not been complainers. when we couldn't have kids, we adopted. we didn't have time to prepare for a trial, we still gave it our best. we will fight for another chance. we have been given many second chances and now will ask for one. it will take more than our effort. justice will have to be more than just a word. fairness will be more than just a dream. it will take others. somebody apoliti
so yet. >> you see more and more product and cheeses and medicinal products from mexico, much more interest in mexican chocolate, and you see the changing demographics, people demanding higher quality products. >> reporter: high-tend chocolates and cultural artifacts are so popular they are not just fetching top dollar, escondido has begun accepting pesos. >> more mexicans, more pesos. makes more sense of accepting them as a waive providing a public service of the people who come to the shop. >> reporter: mexicans have also taken manhattan, moving in where puerto ricans and dominicans once ran bodegas and beauty shops. >> a lot of mexicans working in factories and hair salons, nail salons, everything, and, you know, from there they got better and some of them you see them now store owners, their own clothe stores, cell phone places, dealers, the same way somebody from mexico can come and do the same thing here. >> reporter: mexican births will soon outpace dominicans and puerto ricans in new york while more dominicans are leaving than arriving, not just moving up but moving out. >>

canada and even mexico. >> from canada, from mexico, from texas. we mobilize together as an industry in order to bring electric confidence back to our customers. this partnership has existed since 1955 and we're dedicated to the safety of our customers and restoring power to them. >> and this is a major undertaking because of what we just saw this past summer, the people in the mid-atlantic area were without power for a very long time because of a storm and it was just last year with hurricane irene that brought a lot of power outages for a very lengthy time to the state of connecticut. >> that's right, i would contrast this storm from the deratio we experienced this summer, where it same upon us all at once, we didn't have the time to stage our crews. this time we have several days warning, we're staging our crews, but again, this is going to be a very, very severe storm. mr. owens, meteorologist chad myers has a question for you. >> this is going to be one of those big storms, it's going to be windy for a long time and people are going to lose power at the beginning and are going t
at a live picture from the launch site in new mexico. if everything goes to plan, baumgartner will begin the first person to break the sound bear aier witho a -- barrier without the aid of a vehicle. back in april i got a chance to ask him about that special suit he will wear for this moment. >> if you want to go up to an altitude of 120,000 feet you need to have a pressurized suit. reason why, if you cross the line, about 60,000 feet high, water in your blood starts boiling and the pressure suit keeps the pressure with you and it's not going to happen to you. but also at the same time it's very limiting. you have a lack of movement. it's hard to exit the capsule in the suit. that will require a lot of practicing. that's what i did in the past. >> we hope it worked. joining us live from roswell, new mexico, with an update on the launch and final preparations. >>> jetblue and 7-eleven are involved in a new publications battle and using the election to win the war for you. a hybrid? most are just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c
of this circulation goes all the way from the gulf of mexico on its western extent to the central atlantic on its eastern extent. so who's feeling it right now? we're going to talk about where it's going to go. right now the first wave of rainmaking its way on through the outer banks down through charleston, south carolina, the waves beginning to move. the winds beginning to pick up. the first dams of heavy rain coming in. here's the computer model of where this will go. here comes the area of low pressure moving north. what we're going to see is late monday night, somewhere between washington, d.c. and new york city, center circulation moves ashore. north of that is where the worst surge will be. but look what happens. again, because of this fusing of almost a nor'easter, this area of low pressure, coupled with this tropical storm, which is a hurricane, together we've got cold air -- how about ten to 20 inches potentially of snow through the spine of the appalachians. concurrent, we should see ten inches of rain on the outer banks of north carolina. so a lot of energy here. biggest impacts, the
, they should be inflating the balloon right about now, rapid randi. it's out in new mexico. it's about 6:00 a.m. out there. i think the latest we've heard from red bull is that the launch could take place maybe m next hour or so. maybe hour and a half. they're monitoring wind conditions, of course. that was what did in the last attempt on tuesday morning. it's kind of just a key thing that they're monitoring on the ground there is the wind speed. that's what's caused two different delays here. we think maybe the launch of the balloon should take place the next hour, hour and a half or so. at that point it will take about two and a half to three hours for him to get up to the point from which he will jump 120,000 feet above the surface of the earth. you know, that's the progression of this thing. it takes about two and a half to three hours to reach that point. then he will jump, and then the first 30 to 40 seconds he is expected to break the sound bearier to free-fall at a speed of more than 698 miles an hour. the entire jump son-in-law supposed to take about 15 minutes. >> i guess a lot of p

is in roswell, new mexico. and, brian, just sitting around the newsroom, we were all sort of crest fallen, anticipating this hopefully history being made. set the scene for me there on the ground. disappointment. >> reporter: it sure is, brooke. we're all about as deflated that is balloon is right now. we can show you that balloon, our photo journalist mike love will try to zoom into it. the balloon is deflated on the ground over there. that was essentially the reason that this mission had to be aborted today. once they got the thing almost inflated, it looked like it was fully inflated, the winds started really whipping it around. i would say fairly severely. surface winds that came upon, i guess, fairly surprisingly, at that point they decided that it just was not optimum condition to launch this. they brought felix baumgartner out of the capsule on to a crane where he was lowered. he's in this air stream container, we believe next to the capsule. and so the mission is aborted for today. tomorrow, weather conditions not as certain, so this could be delayed beyond tomorrow, possibly to t
